Menon Renewable Products produces MrFeed® from agriculture products meeting specifications of aquaculture and aviculture industries
Amino acids, proteins, fiber, carbohydrates, prebiotics, probiotics, oils, vitamins and minerals produced in a single fermentation process at commercial scale
SAN DIEGO, JULY 15, 2014 – Construction of the plant for initial demonstration was completed and production started. Various ingredients were fermented and mixed to produce MrFeed®. Initial production of MrFeed® was demonstrated at 1,200 tons per year in 2014 and planned to scale to 100,000 tons per year by fourth quarter 2015.
“We have created a product that do not contain animal products and utilizes organic sources that are easily digested by the animals. The food contains vegetarian sources yet meet protein levels needed leading to potentially organic feed for aquaculture and aviculture applications” stated Suresh Menon, Ph.D., President of Menon Renewable Products, Inc.”
Dr. Menon further stated, “Now that a commercial scale fermentation facility is retrofitted and demonstrated, Menon team can acquire, retrofit and utilize any existing fermentation facility to produce its products globally.”
